"This is because the "large majority" of boomers have few financial assets to sell
I am not buying that arguement. I would like to see their specifics (I no longer get the WSJ so I can't verify this).
They may not have individual stocks to sell but they most definately have "assets" to sell; whether that is in a 401K, and 403B, or a pension.
The overwhelming majority of money I manage is in the hands of boomers and folks that are older.
The reason I personally think we will not have to worry about them crashing the market is because (as for example) most of the ones I work with, don't need to cash out immediately at retirement. They may need to reduce their stock holdings but they still need to keep some for growth.
